At just 27 years old, Florence Pugh has had quite the impressive career!

Florence Pugh's career began in 2014 when she landed her first role in the mystery drama The Falling starring alongside Game of Thrones actress Masie Williams – and Flo was still at college at the time, impressive!
It didn't take long for her filmography to skyrocket from there, the young star then bagged the lead role in Lady Macbeth (2016) as well as working on several television shows during this time.
2018 marked a big year for Florence, who was just 22 at the time, she featured in multiple big-budget projects and everyone was starting to take notice of the new young talent.
She wowed in performances in action-thriller The Commuter, drama Outlaw King (featuring her future DWD co-star Chris Pine) and horror Malevolent.
Not to mention she also made a hilarious cameo in the BBC skit Leading Lady Parts, the short film has amassed over a whopping 1.3 million views on YouTube.
Just five years into her career, Pugh was already forging a pretty impressive path for herself, with 2019 being widely considered her breakthrough year!
When you look at Florence's filmography at this time it's hard to deny that she is a genre-subverting queen! From Greta Gerwig's adaptation of Little Woman to the critically acclaimed Ari Aster horror Midsommar, Pugh certainly showed her expansive acting chops.
She marked the start of this huge year in her career with Fighting with My Family, which certainly put her on the map!
After the smash success that was 2019, Florence was firmly in the mainstream!
After being inundated with movie offers, the actress bagged herself a role within the Marvel Cinematic Universe – joining the likes of Tom Holland, Chris Evans and her Don't Worry Darling co-star-to-be Harry Styles (more on that later).
In 2021, Pugh appeared in the highly-awaited superhero flick Black Widow, starring alongside none other than Scarlett Johansson.
She portrays the character of Yelena Belova, a sister figure to Johansson's Natasha Romanoff. Florence's work in the MCU is not over yet, with a second movie slated for 2024
Florence Pugh has been a name on everyone's lips as she gears up to the release of some pretty huge projects in 2022.
The mega-hotly-anticipated film directed by Olivia Wilde Don't Worry Darling hit theatres on September 23 – and fans were utterly blown away by Pugh's stunning performance as Alice.
A Netflix Original flick, The Wonder, released to rave reviews in November and shows Flo dipping her toe back in the period drama pond but is also a psychological thriller just DWD!
Upon the movie's release, the acting sensation wrote on Instagram: "We shot it last summer, through thick mud, surprising sudden mountain rainstorms and just as surprising brief sunny spells."
She also has three other promising projects that have entered post-production for the year 2023 – she's a very busy woman!
The comedy-drama A Good Person will arrive in theatres next year and is directed by Zach Braff, Flo released the trailer at the end of the year and we're already so excited!
Florence is currently filming for the epic science-fiction franchise Dune: Part Two, starring alongside Timothée Chalamet and Zendaya.
